's the real problem. i thought it was interesting. vice president biden said he was not concerned about getting guns out of the hands of minute people. well, i'm the same way. i don't think we should take away from good people, law-abiding people, the right to own firearms. , and what we ought to focus on is where the real problem is. you look at some of the plays that have strict gun control. washington d.c. had the strongest gun control law in the country. ofsh the highest murder rate. they understand the issue is the people that pull the triggers on those guns ask trying to keep guns away from them. that's what we ought to be focused on, and the mentally ill part i do consider a productive step that hopefully something will come of. >> haley barbour, thank you very much, governor. thanks for joining us today. appreciate it. >>> coming up next, carolyn mccarthy, a gun violence victim, and one of the strongest advocates on capitol hill as joe biden takes the road on gun violence. and it's the best as i understandoff. tim geithner could have asked for. the market reactions to ed. this i

them care enough about it that they will actually vote on it. >> considering joe biden, susan, has been leading the charge on gun control, i want to play one more clip from his google chat. he was asked if an assault weapons ban would -- >> a shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun than the assault weapons in somebody's hands who doesn't know how to use it. even one who does know how to use it. you know. it's harder to use an assault weapon and hit something than it is a shotgun. you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells. >> this seems to be part of the strategy. sort of common sense. also things like we've heard supporters say you don't need an assault rifle to shoot a duck. you need 30 shots from a magazine to kill a deer you probably shouldn't be out there hunting. what's the messaging and how important is the messaging? >> the messaging is important and we certainly see vice president biden out there. and the president, too. the white house says the president will be making speeches doing some trips that relate to this measure but the

the announcement? >> he has jack lew. he has joe biden to send up for the all-important relationships on capitol hill. i think this was a legacy pick. the president now has as we know an ambitious agenda that he laid out in the inaugural address. the question is, who is going to protect those goals from him? it's someone he has been with ever since his federal public life has started. that's mcdonough. this is somebody he trusts to protect not just himself. not just the staff, but to move that legacy and the obama era sooner or later will come to an end. the president clearly wants to make the major shape now. i think that's why he picked this man he trusts and has known for so long. >> john kerry ends before the senate foreign relations committee and he will be confirmed. i don't think there is any doubt about that. chuck hagel, that could be a little bit more. >> i think they will rough him up and be more lively than the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been criti

for hillary clinton in 2016? governor rendell? >> well, sure. if hillary runs, as much as i like joe biden, and i think joe has done a terrific job as vice president, you can't stand in the way of history. if hillary runs, she's going to be the nominee, and president obama is going to stump hard for her because really you do need the 12 years to shape all the policy direction that you wanted to achieve, so i think president obama is going to be very big advocate for hillary. >> that will be such poetic symmetry. >> well, hillary did a good job for him in the general. >> and, look, bill helped out a lot in the last race. i think that that is not lost on -- >> they don't disagree on very much. one of the interesting things they said is in 2008 they each had to stretch and reach to come up with something that they didn't -- >> there's one big area. anybody know? >> the individual mandate. >> the individual mandate. >> hillary and obama was against it. >> yeah. >> that was a stretch. declaring a state of emergency as deadly violence erupts across the country. we'll get a live update from cairo

take it much harder. >> so, chuck, how is joe biden feeling today? >> we're trying to see if they peeled him off the ceiling after he found out this was going to happen. >> the reason the president wanted to do this, and the reason he thought he owed her a public thanks is i got two names for you. john mccain, the other is ted kennedy. ted kennedy was a thorn in jimmy carter's side. kept the party pretty divided in times in the late 1970s. john mccain and george w. bush, very bad relationship in that first term. made getting some things done on capitol hill very difficult. difficult at times for george w. bush to unite his party sometimes, but even unite independents, and what did obama not want? that same issue, and that's why he wanted hillary clinton in his cabinet, in his white house, so he didn't have that. it kept the party united. that's what he was thanking her for more than anything else, which was sort of thank you for keeping the party united and not going to senate, which would have been, you know, think about every moment in the obama first term and what life

to the treasury department and joe biden are perfectly capable of managing capitol hill and what needs to be done next in terms of bills and the budget and all of that kind of stuff. i think what makes mcdonough choice so interesting is it's a legacy choice. this is a man who has been at the president's side since the president's national career started as a freshman senator. he was there through the election. he has been at the white house all this time. this is a man whose loyalties to the president and who will protect the president, which is really the number one job of chief of staff. i think it's a very interesting choice and someone that the president trusts fully because now the president is putting together what will be these final years of the obama era and this is a man that he trusts to protect the obama era. >> candy, people might not know this. when the president gets that 3:00 a.m. call that everybody talked about, hillary clinton included, it's the chief of staff who is picking up the phone and he will hear mcdonough's voice, denis' voice, in any kind of crisis situation, any kind
